Mini vent coming up:
So they opened a Dunkin Donuts very close to my girls' school. I ran over there today to get a donut (Boston Kreme) to bring home and enjoy. I get home and the darn donut was upside down, causing the chocolate to stick the bag
Oh that sucks Katherine! My dh would totally call and try to get compensated. I am not one for confrontation if I can avoid it though. Dh feels that this world is going to he11 in a handbasket starting with deplorable customer service lol. When he was in college (and we had our oldest) he was a manager at McDs and still 10 yrs later says he could run circles around the current employees and sometimes lectures them in drive thru (rolls eyes) soo embarrassing but he is usually right .
Im resurrecting the chat thread......
to say that I really really really don't want to clean my car but given that its nice out I feel the need to. I swear I have on DD and it looks like I have 7 kids in there its so messy. I found a sippy cup that I didn't even know she had one in the car. And her cup spilled one day so know my leather seats are all sticky.
speaking of cars I drive a 2007 Ford Taurus and it works well with having her car seat in there and the trunk is pretty big so it holds the car seat plus some but now with this baby coming I am thinking that i'd much rather have an SUV again ( I was in a car accident last year and had to get rid of my explorer) now i'm thinking i'd much rather have something else. Its not really necessary though and I like not having a car payment. The car will fit both car seats just fine.
Anyone else going to have to upgrade or make adjustments to their cars to fit baby?
I use to drive a Taurus x which was a 3rd row cross over it was a pretty good car. Last summer we upgraded to a minivan A) I swore I would never drive one. b) I freaking love that thing ........ It a Chrysler Town and Country fully loaded with 2 dvd players in it, the doors and trunk are automatic which is sooooo nice. So the Babies will go in the middle and the big kids will ride in the back.... Now I just gotta get DD to help figure out how to buckle little brother and life would be great (not that I would ever reallty trust her to do it).
Our Taurus wagon will be obsolete once the baby comes. But we have an 8-seat Toyota Sienna, so that will be the only car we can take the whole family in. When we are ready to upgrade, we will get a 10 or 12 passenger van. (I hate the huge 15-passenger ones.) We're in no hurry, though, since we have one of our cars paid off.

I just bought an SUV a few months ago.
However, Kevin has a truck and a car, and the car is small and barely fit Brodys carseat- so im thinking hes gonna have to make a change, because his truck is a big lifted truck with just the front seats... soo... he really wants a huge extended cab truck, so hopefully he'll sell his car AND truck to get it...
But if thats the case, I might trade my suv that I Looove in, for a better gas mileage car, so we dont just have gas hogs to drive
I'm going to need to get a minivan. We do have a 3rd row in our SUV, but it would be very difficult to get into a carseat in the back and there wouldn't be room for a stroller or basically much of anything. We live out in the country with hills and snow in the winter so I would like a minivan with AWD or something. That'll have to wait until at least this summer. I love my current vehicle for two kids - Chrysler Pacifica. It has lots of cargo space and it's easy to get the kids in and out of. It drives like a car.
My workout kicked my butt this morning. I had to stop a couple of times. At least everyone in my class knows I'm pregnant now and not just a wuss.
